Cattleya Bonanza (Bracey) x Rhyncholaeliocattleya Norman's Bay

Mail ordered from Exotic Orchids of Maui in 2010, one of my first Cattleyas. A consistent bloomer, the sweet fragrance on this thing kicks most of the day... so much so that I can barely stand next to the plant for more than a few minutes before needing air. I believe it's the lueddemanniana in the background. 3 blooms now with another spike in sheath.

enjoy.

Glorious Catt. with a very nice dorsal. I adore fragrant flowers and keep pollen
on my nose a lot.

Nice.

The overpowering scent is likely from its dowiana background.

Gorgeous! Almost as impressive as Rlc. Norman's Bay 'Gothic'. 😃
